Dan Bailey Misses Only Field Goal Attempt In Week 7

Minnesota Vikings kicker Dan Bailey missed a 45-yard field goal but went a perfect 6-for-6 on extra-point attempts in Week 7's win over the Detroit Lions. This was Bailey's second missed field goal this season, but he's still hitting 80% of his attempts and nailed his lone 50-yard attempt back in Week 3. Bailey is... Read More

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 24-of-34 passes for 337 yards and four touchdowns in Week 7's 42-30 win over the Detroit Lions.

Adam Thielen Out For Rest Of Contest

Alexander Mattison Is A Desperation Flex Play In Week 7

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison remains the clear backup to starter Dalvin Cook, but the rookie has started to emerge as a player who could be used as a bye-week streamer in favorable matchups. Mattison rushed 14 times for 63 yards in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles, a team that ranks among the... Read More

Stefon Diggs Is Back On WR2 Radar In Week 7

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs should be started as a low-end WR2 in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. He went nuclear in Week 6 with seven catches for 167 yards and three touchdowns, but the Lions Defense is tough against outside receivers and there's a chance that he's shadowed by shutdown corner Darius...

Kyle Rudolph Is Not Worth Considering In Week 7

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph is not a player you need to force into lineups in Week 7. Rudolph caught 3-of-3 targets for 36 yards in his best game of 2019 in Week 6. He has just nine catches this year and his average target distance is 2.2 yards. He's still playing at least... Read More

Adam Thielen Is A Mid-Range WR2 Against Lions

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen has caught 13 of 16 targets for 187 yards and three touchdowns over the last two games (Giants and Eagles). Week 7's matchup is a bit less favorable, however, as the Lions have been stingy against outside wide receivers with top cornerbacks Darius Slay and Rashaan Melvin. However, Thielen... Read More

Dalvin Cook Primed For Huge Week 7

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook is in line for a monster game in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions.

Kirk Cousins Is A High-End QB2 In Week 7

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has provided an uptick in production the last two weeks, compiling 639 passing yards and a 6/1 TD/INT ratio in wins against the Giants and the Eagles. Cousins will look to keep it going against the Detroit Lions in Week 7 on the road in what should be a close... Read More

Kyle Rudolph Has Three Grabs For 36 Yards In Win

Minnesota Vikings tight end caught 3-of-3 targets for 36 yards in a Week 6 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. This was Rudolph's best game this season by quite a large margin, which just reinforces that he can't be trusted as a starting tight end even with the position being as shallow as it is. He...

Laquon Treadwell Hauls In One Catch In Victory

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell caught his only target for 15 yards in Week 6's 38-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Alexander Mattison Impresses In Week 6

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison carried 14 times for 63 yards in Week 7's 38-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen caught 6-of-8 targets for 57 yards and one receiving touchdown in Week 6's 38-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Kirk Cousins Is A Decent QB2 Option In Week 6

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins could be in line for a second straight usable fantasy performance in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Adam Thielen Is An Upside WR2 In Week 6

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen missed practice on Thursday but returned for Friday's practice and will play in Sunday's matchup at home against the Philadelphia Eagles. Thielen is coming off a monster 130-yard, two-touchdown game against the New York Giants and will have another favorable matchup in Week 6 - the Eagles were allowing... Read More

Vikings Defense Is A Low-End Starting Option Against Eagles

The Vikings Defense is a unit that you're generally starting regardless of the matchup, but expectations should be lowered slightly for Week 6's home tilt against the Philadelphia Eagles. Carson Wentz and company rank seventh in the NFL with 28.2 points/game and have a few dangerous weapons in Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz, and Miles Sanders.... Read More

Kyle Rudolph Is A Touchdown-Dependent TE2 in Week 6

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph has been close to non-existent from a fantasy football perspective so far this year, catching 6-of-8 targets for 36 scoreless yards in five games played. He has been on the field for at least 84% of offensive snaps in each game but is being asked to block on most... Read More

Alexander Mattison Is Not A Streaming Option Against Eagles

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison is not a player to consider for starting lineups in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Mattison is having a very solid season as the backup to Dalvin Cook as he's averaging 5.6 yards per carry and has received seven or more carries in 3-of-5 games. He had four... Read More

Dalvin Cook Is A Rock-Solid RB1 In Week 6

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook is averaging 108.4 rushing yards/game and 5.9 yards per carry through five weeks.

Expectations should be slightly tempered,... Read More

Stefon Diggs Has WR2 Potential Against Eagles

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs has had a rough start to the season as he has totaled just one touchdown and one game with over 50 receiving yards.
